Netmoiré is an improvisational trio featuring Jason Charney (computer), Josh Simmons (computer), and Nick Zoulek (saxophones). Searching for the overlaid patterns found through improvisational networking, Netmoiré creates an energetic, abstract, and mercurial experience that blends the avant-garde with electronic, beat-driven music. The trio met while pursuing graduate studies at Bowling Green State University, under the tutelage of Dr. John Sampen and Dr. Elainie Lillios. Their influences and inspirations include Death Grips, Colin Stetson, J Dilla, Tim Hecker, Evan Parker, Ben Frost, and most importantly, an affinity for chaotic sound.

Netmoiré is an electroacoustic improvisation trio featuring Jason Charney and Josh Simmons on computers and Nick Zoulek on saxophones.

Our music stems from several improvisation practices that reflect our various backgrounds: free jazz and avant-garde musics, sampling, turntablism, and live signal processing. We’ve developed a shared language of improvisation that is a synthesis of these practices.

Drawing from several different improvisation archetypes, we perform short or extended sets that may be complemented by other improvisors or artists working in other media. We are also open to augmenting our group with other musicians.

Our group often rehearses freely to develop material, and then refines several structures that we can string together for sets of varying length. Because of our free improvisation rehearsal process, we constantly explore and reflect on our impulses and reactions to each others ideas. We reflect upon improvisational practice, especially its intersection with live performance and electronics. How do two computers capable of such vast sounds fit with each other sonically and complement each other, rather than vying for dominance in the sound environment? How does an acoustic instrument lead, respond, and instigate musical material in concert with digital music?
